This was taken at the end of November at a club shoot. Taken riding on the back of someone else's shoot - caught their studio flash during a handheld 3.2 second exposure. The second face is the one built up in the off-flash time. I quite like the effect.

Edited with Silver Efex Pro - using control points to darken the background and some of the face. Cropped original is offered below:

Very cool. At first I thought it was smoke. Perfect for B&W.

First impression:
Looks like the soul of Jimi Hendrix is coming out of him. Very cool.

Suggested improvement:
Since your choice of edit has made his hair blend in with the background, I think you could have cropped a little off the top. This would put the mans eyes in thirds instead of centered as they are now.

really nice paul! makes you stop and look for a while, and the model has a look that seems it could be a rock star like lenny kravitz or jimmy hendrix perhaps even phil linott....

this photo is really interesting. The soft edit makes it feel welcome, yet, the effect from the double exposure is really haunting to me. Very good job, Its not all the time I feel something this strongly from a photo

interesting and effective approach - the conversion to duotone gives this a more subtle feel and this works great for the image

This is cool. Has the duality to it for sure. Love the tones.

Wow-very nice processing to make it so mysterious -

Very ghostly! Cool but somewhat disturbing upon first look, glad you gave us an explanation (although is it actually much more apparent from the color original). Like how your processing made this very dramatic.
